‘No one’s any right to be what father is - never questioned, never answered back’
1912, the Industrial North
Rutherford is overbearing, dogmatic and disappointed. With three grown children and not one qualified to take over his family-owned glassworks, he rules his household with tyranny and disdain.
Janet, John and Richard have dreams of their own but none can break free. Mary is different. Married into the family and with ambitions for her son, she’ll untangle the ties that bind.
Caroline Steinbeis directs Githa Sowerby’s celebrated classic about the struggle for supremacy, legacy and deciding one’s own destiny.

The vostok k incident
A Cold War pilot… A mysterious rocket… Previously unheard interview tapes… Unlock the secrets of The Vostok-K Incident in this immersive 3D audio drama by connecting your phones, tablets, and laptops.
This project is all about bringing 'spatial audio' experiences into the home.
The S3A project team (researchers from the Universities of Surrey, Salford, Southampton, and BBC R&D) have been working on a way of using speakers in devices that people already have at home—mobile phones, tablets, and laptops—so that we can unlock immersive audio experiences for many more listeners.
We’re testing this idea with a new science-fiction drama—The Vostok-K Incident. It’s 13 minutes long and was created specifically to take advantage of extra connected devices to tell a story. You can listen to the piece just like a normal audio drama, but the experience gets better as you connect more extra devices, unlocking immersive spatial aspects as well as extra hidden content.
